Earlier this month CBR News posted an interview with “El Cazador” writer Chuck Dixon. With this interview was included a nice selection of preview artwork. Tuesday, CrossGen sent out a press release with a few not yet seen images from “El Cazador.” We’ve reprinted the press release below and posted the images not yet seen on CBR.

With retailers ordering their September 2003 comics today, readers are
reminded to reserve their copy of EL CAZADOR #1. Propelled by the all-star
creative team of writer Chuck Dixon, artist Steve Epting and colorist Frank
D’Armata, EL CAZADOR unleashes a wild epic of swashbuckling danger set in
the Golden Age of pirates! When the life of a fiery Spanish donessa is
shattered by a villainous armada, she sets sail with vengeance in her
heart–reborn as Captain Sin! The sexy she-devil is CrossGen’s next major
hero–and you can meet her in a savage tale of the days when cannons roared,
cutlasses clashed, and the seas were stained blood red! Best of all, this
standalone story is set on Earth and features not a single sigil–which
means it’s the perfect entry point for anyone who’s ever wanted to try a
CrossGen title!

Spotlighted in the latest “Publisher’s Picks” section of Comic Buyer’s
Guide, EL CAZADOR #1 generated the following rave reviews from a panel of
prominent retailers:

“Most of us have been waiting for a pirate comic since Watchmen, and you
couldn’t ask for a better one than EL CAZADOR. Obviously this is a labor of
love for Chuck Dixon, who weaves a story that’s both action-packed and
utterly convincing in all the little details. Rich with pirate lore without
ever becoming hoary, it’s a thrilling, beautifully illustrated grand
adventure. Grade: A” -S.A. Bennett, Dark Star Books & Comics (Yellow
Springs, OH)

“Dixon’s dialogue sets the nautical mood and Epting’s art is lush and
cinematic in its execution. This is the beginning of a fine adventure story
with the unusual twist of a female pirate protagonist.” -Charlie Harris,
Charlie’s Comic Books (Tucson, AZ)

“Intrigue, cannons, peg legs and scurvy swabs abound in this lushly
illustrated tale. Toss in the obligatory fair maiden in trouble and you have
quite the stewpot of piratical storytelling.” -Jeremy Shorr, Titan Comics
(Dallas, TX)

“Talk about perfect timing–what better time for a pirate comic than now, in
light of Pirates of the Caribbean’s cinematic success? Of course, that
wouldn’t help much if EL CAZADOR wasn’t good, but it is. Dixon’s bold
storytelling evokes a sense of realism, while Epting’s art has the vitality
of Al Williamson at his best. Great stuff that demonstrates yet again that
CrossGen is a lot more than a sigil. Grade: A” -Cliff Biggers, Dr. No’s
Comics (Marietta, GA)

EL CAZADOR sets sale on September 3rd…but you can reserve your ticket to
adventure today!
